The Important Power of NEXT

I’m going through survey results as they relate to my recent webinar (now available on demand). Of the hundreds, who attended and purchased, I received surveys back from about 115. Of those, 111 people were positive to very positive, with some being effusive in their praise and kindness. Four people said fairly negative and disappointed […]

Comfort is the Enemy

All of my work seems to be pointing to the same direction lately. People are struggling. They’re running out of time, running out of money, running out of motivation. If I’m to take everyone at their word, they’ve “tried everything” and “nothing works.” And yet, what I see, more and more, is that “good enough” […]

How to Fail Your Way Out of a Hole – or What Separates Me From Most People

Jacq and I work well together. She has this uncanny ability to point me towards interesting things that end up being passions of mine. She decides to get back into lifting weights, and then I rush out and get fanatical about it. She decides to work promoting Visalus, and then I go nuts. Jacq’s given […]

War is Work, Not Mystery

When we get antsy, we stop what we’re doing. When we are unsure, we grind to a halt. In Steven Pressfield’s Gates of Fire, there’s a great speech given by King Leonidas to his generals before the night of The Battle of Thermopylae (the movie 300 also covers this, kind of). Here are just a […]

Why I Switched to Rainmaker

I recently moved chrisbrogan.com to the Rainmaker platform, because I wanted to work more on my business, and less on the details of maintaining a website. In case you’re not aware, Rainmaker is a hosted WordPress solution with a very customized back-end so that everything is a lot simpler and cleaner and easier to understand. […]

Buy The Right Thing

In case you don’t already get my podcast, I thought I’d stick a copy of it here to check out. I recorded a short little conversation about choices and price and value and how we sometimes make really silly choices that don’t make any sense whatsoever. Also, in this recording, I mentioned a webinar I’m […]

How Can I Focus Better?

The strangest of moments can bring you insights. I’ll tell you that for sure. Do you see the picture that accompanies this post? That was moments after winning a silly competition where I had to use a piece of uncooked spaghetti to spear six ziti noodles without using any hands. How did I accomplish this […]

How Do You Grow Your Business?

What we do mostly at Owner Media Group is provide solutions and guidance to help people grow their business in some form or fashion. Its a mix of professional, personal, and business development all mooshed together nicely into one package. When I ask people what kind of help they need, however, it’s interesting to hear […]

You’re Not Freaky Enough

Jacq was watching a rerun of Shark Tank last night with her mom and she came across Steve Gadling, who pitched his business to the Shark Tank. What was he doing? Drawing cats. Not very well, mind you. And just with paper and a Sharpie. And he wanted ten thousand dollars. Part of his pitch […]

How Do I Reach My Audience?

People ask me that often. “How do I reach my audience?” First, I tell them gently, it’s not your audience. Second, I tell them that reach is only part of it. Once they’ve seen you, they have to care enough that they’ll take a next step. From there, it only gets more difficult. But that’s […]

Is It Really So Weird That I Want to Tackle the Obesity Epidemic?

I’ve been working to support a 90 Day Health Challenge that works at the same time to help YOU deal with losing weight and at the same time, help kids battle obesity. Some people have asked me what THAT’s all about. Let me tell you! MOST Everyone We Know Needs To Get Healthier Continue Reading

100 Blog Topics for Your Business

Seven years ago, I wrote a post entitled 100 blog topics I hope you write. A lot of them still hold up rather well. But I thought it might be fun to give you a NEW list of 100 blog topics to make your own. Please feel free to share this list, but please link […]

Once It All Aligns

I’ve been so very fortunate. On my radio show, I’ve had great guests who all operate at the top of their various games. Through my private coaching, I’m able to work with people who are on the verge of offering great value to the world they serve. And daily, I meet more and more people […]

Turning Off Comments and Why We Will All Be Okay

Today, I have decided to shut down the commenting feature on chrisbrogan.com. My reason is very basic: Since moving to a new platform, comment spam has fallen onto my site like a ton of bricks. And people are sending me lots of very polite and well-meaning emails telling me that my site is overrun with […]

Experimental Life

On the Owner’s Mind podcast, I ask a question or two about experimenting, and how I might better help you. MOST of the time, I interview nice people, but this is something different. I’m sharing this here, so if you’re a blog subscriber but not a podcast subscriber, you can rectify that magically. :) …

Sponsored Posts Would Work Better If You Improved Context

People are talking about how sponsored posts are showing up in their stream on places like Instagram these days. I saw one the other day for some TV show. It was a bit jarring, because I was pretty sure I wasn’t following Liev Schreiber. Show More Summary

Evolution

I started journaling in 1998. It wasn’t called blogging until much later. I had no business intent. I just wanted to share stories I’d written that the mainstream had no interest in publishing. Along the way, I learned a lot (mostlyShow More Summary

Understanding Value

My friend, Anthony is one of the best salesmen I’ve ever met. Whenever I ask him the key to selling, he says the same thing every time without hesitation: “Sales is about creating value.” Understanding Value My universe has shifted into amazing alignment lately. Show More Summary

What You Think You Sell

There’s what you say you sell, what you think you sell, and what others think you sell. I’m in a bit of a quandary. I think these three facets don’t line up really well right now. I know what I sell and what I intend to sell. But I need feedback from you. What do you SEEK from me? Not what I’m selling. Show More Summary
